Recently nominated for Best Underground Band at the Alternative Press Music Awards, Too Close To Touch again teamed up with producer Erik Ron (Issues, Set It Off) in the making of Haven’t Been Myself.
Throughout the album, the band builds a heavy tension with their urgent rhythms and impassioned guitar work, then obliterates that tension with each explosive chorus. At the same time, Too Close To Touch offer what Pierce refers to as “an exploration of grief, and the process of trying to get back to the person you used to be after going through something that changes you forever.”
Right from Haven’t Been Myself’s devastating opening track, Too Close To Touch fully immerse themselves in that exploration. With its unflinching account of the recent death of Pierce’s three-year-old sister Eiley, “Sympathy” sheds light on the frustration of dealing with empty expressions of condolence. From there, Too Close To Touch delve into the many dimensions of loss, bringing both raw emotion and delicate nuance to tracks like the haunting, beat-infused “What I Wish I Could Forget.” “That song’s essentially about wishing I could erase certain memories, because that would make it so much easier to find some kind of peace,” explains Pierce. And with “Eiley,” Pierce creates a closely detailed portrait of the aftermath of his sister’s death and lays down his most painfully stirring performance on the album.<br>
